How to Shoot 3D Photos for Selling Poshmark
Poshmark has become very popular in the last decade as a marketplace for women’s fashion, brand names — all second hand used goods that can be bought at relatively inexpensive prices. It is easy to download for free on a phone or tablet by looking it up on the Apple App Store or Google Play store. Other apps that provide seller marketplaces include ThredUp, Let Go and Offer Up. Read on for tips for shooting 3D photos for selling on Poshmark using our 3D photo app LucidPix.
Before you Start
Find items to sell
When starting out, sell old clothes, shoes, or other items that you own but don’t want anymore. After a while, you might catch on to hot and trendy items that will sell well. You can cruise local boutiques to find those kinds of items to sell eventually. You’ll soon find that selling on Poshmark is fun and easy!
Gather shipping materials
Poshmark gives sellers 7 days to ship an item, but try selling it within at least 2 days (the recommended time). Many buyers expect quick shipping from Poshmark sellers.
Prepare shipping materials beforehand. You might have to invest in buying some boxes and mailers, but it is part of the selling experience.
There are USPS Priority shipping boxes available for free at the post office.
You can also order from USPS online, but it can take 2 weeks or more to have them delivered to you. Use USPS Priority Mail, Flat Rate, or Regional Rate boxes and envelopes (red and white colored). Avoid Express Mail boxes and envelopes (blue and white colored).
You will also need:
- Thank you cards or stickers
- Access to a printer and paper for shipping labels
- Packaging tape (unless you use USPS self-sticking boxes)
- Clear tape & scissors (unless you have self-sticking labels)
- A small scale
Here is a step-by-step guide for selling on Poshmark:
- Download and open the Poshmark app
- Set up your profile
- Use your phone to take pictures of the items you want to sell
- Write a description
- Check the appropriate category, size, color boxes
- Name your price (and the original price)
- Push the List Item button
- Wait for inquiries or a purchase
- Accept or counter any offers
- Once you accept an offer, print the shipping label
- Drop your sold item in the mail
- Buyer has three days to mark the item as received or it will be marked received for them
- Get paid!
Funds should deposit into your account the same day the seller accepts the purchase (or within three days of tracked receipt).
Post a lot of photos
Be sure to take photos of your item from all angles. When selling shoes, take photos of the top and sides and the soles. For clothes, zoom in on the intricacy of designs, and take a photo of the label so the potential buyer sees that it is authentic. Use neutral backgrounds or natural sunlight if at all possible.

Describe what you’re selling
Buyers want to know details, such as width, length and height. For dresses, be sure to measure waist circumference, length of the dress from strap to hem and chest width. For jeans, describe the style, such as boot cut or straight leg.
